In a recent escalation of tensions in the East China Sea, a Dutch naval ship, the HNLMS Tromp, found itself at the center of a potentially risky encounter with two Chinese fighter jets. The Dutch Ministry of Defence confirmed the incident, stating that the Chinese aircraft had circled the ship multiple times, creating an unsafe situation in international airspace. Additionally, a Dutch NH90 maritime combat helicopter accompanying the ship was also approached by the Chinese fighters and a helicopter during its patrol in the region.

The HNLMS Tromp was on a patrol mission in the East China Sea as part of 'Pacific Archer '24' and was en route to Japan when the incident occurred. The Dutch Ministry emphasized that the encounter took place in international airspace, underscoring the sensitivity of such interactions in disputed regions like the East China Sea. This incident comes amidst existing tensions in the area, with Japan lodging protests just days before when four Chinese ships, suspected to be armed, sailed near disputed islands controlled by Japan. These islands, known as the Senkakus in Japan and the Diaoyus in China, have been a focal point of a longstanding territorial dispute between the two countries.
